London-based publisher Phaidon has just put together with its expert editors a new book called Houses: Extraordinary Living. The 448-page hardcover tome showcases 400 of the most architecturally innovative houses around the globe.

The book documents some of the most interesting architectural designs since the early 20th century, featuring styles spanning from Modernism, Postmodernism, Brutalism, to Regionalism, Deconstructivism and International Style. It covers locations from Australia and Japan to Los Angeles, New York and Connecticut, with works from famous 20th-century architects such as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Marcel Breuer or contemporary architects like Tadao Ando, Grafton and Steven Holl.

Organized in curated pairings, each of the entries are filled with awe-inspiring imagery and colorful descriptions, making Houses: Extraordinary Living a perfect addition for both architectural enthusiasts and people simply looking for coffee table books alike. Priced at £39.95 (roughly $52 USD), head over to Phaidon’s website to buy yours now.
